: New Owner Questions

03-10-06, 10:01 AM
Wassup everyone, I'm new to the forum. I just bought a 02 Black Escalade the other day with 69k on it. I am very eager to get the mods rolling but I have few newcomer questions. Keep in mind this is my first truck.

1. What kind of suspension is on that model years? Is it Air shocks, Road sensor shocks?

2. How do you know when you need to change them?

I ask these questions because when I drive the truck on decent roads it floats real nice. When I go in the city the ride is kinda rougher than I expected. I'm wondering with 69k on it if the suspension/shocks are wearing and need to be replaced. I guess I'm use to my gs300's ride quality, but any help would be appreciated.

how much did you pay for your 'Lac?

I bought mine last year (third owner) and it came with an existing certified used car warranty for 100,000 miles. I'm having a wonderful time with mine.

I hope you enjoy yours as much also. Congrats!
